Quintessential Construction Managers & Consultants, LLC was founded in 2006 by Quinten J. Washington, CCM, who decided to utilize the skills and talents gathered during the valuable years of experience with successful firms like Bechtel, Fluor Daniel, DMJM (AECOM), BE&K and Black & Veatch Pritchard.
Since 2006, the Quintessential LLC team, its client base and resources have continued to grow.
In 2007 Quintessential LLC was asked to provide government liaison services on Turner Construction projects in the District of Columbia, based on the company founder’s relationship with the various DC Government agencies. This established a valuable niche in the District of Columbia for the firm, opening doors to other owner representative opportunities and enabling the firm to become one of the major providers of permit expediting and government liaison services in the DC metropolitan area.
Quintessential LLC is a Small Business Administration (SBA) Small Disadvantaged Business (SDB), Metropolitan Washington Airport Authority (MWAA) Local Disadvantaged (LDBE) and Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE), Virginia Small Woman & Minority (SWaM) Owned Business, and Virginia Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE).
Quintessential LLC utilizes proven technologies to assist clients in managing projects large and small, from initial budget, through design and construction, to successful project closeout / completion.
The firm is currently positioned to provide its construction / project management knowledge and experience, which will sustain the firm’s continued growth well into the future.
